Mention Mediterranean vacations and for some, cheap, straw-donkey style Spanish package holidays spring to mind. But the region offers a vast amount of different experiences. The ancient history of Greece and Egypt. The incredible landscape of the Canary Islands. The exotic delights of Morocco. Whatever you desire, you can find it on the Med! There’s a good chance it will be hot and sunny when you are visiting. So what are you waiting for? Head to the Med!
Mediterranean Vacations on a Budget: Cruise the Med
It sounds like the domain of the rich and feckless, we know. However, a great way to see swathes of the Mediterranean region at a low price is to book a budget cruise. Not only will you sample a whole host of different countries, your transportation, meals and accommodation are all part of it. Consequently, it’s a fantastic chance to select countries you may wish to return to for an extended stay.
Just keep a check on those optional extras (such as booze and day trips) to keep within your cruising budget. Make sure to also take advantage of any freebies offered to you on the boat.
Luxury Mediterranean Vacations: The Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast is a region touched by old school Hollywood glamour. One particularly exciting experience is to take the winding, occasionally terrifying, road from Sorrento to Salerno. Witness the incredible vista with the island of Capri in the distance. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
Alternatively, visit Positano, an incredibly scenic, virtually vertical town. It features great restaurants, alluring boutiques and luxury hotels such as Le Sirenuse, where many a Hollywood starlet has taken a room. Out in the bay, the legendary Sirens were said to lure sailors to their doom. You too will find the area irresistible.
Cultural Mediterranean Vacations: Greece
Obviously Greece is known for its ancient history, glorious monuments and stunning architecture. However, many visitors are surprised by the sheer diversity of sights on offer in this fascinating country. The amazing sites at the Parthenon in Athens and the oracle at Delphi are must-see stops. They can become incredibly crowded, especially in summer months, though.
For a more sedate experience, head to the incredible monasteries built high on the sandstone cliffs of Meteora. The islands of Delos, Patmos and Corfu boast lovely pristine beaches as well as architecturally and historically significant sites.
Family Mediterranean Vacations: Spain
Think of a Spanish family holiday. Are you envisioning eating chips on a crowded Costa Brava beach? There are vast tracts of Spain that remain unexplored by tourists. Just two hours outside Madrid is the beautiful Castile region, filled with glorious landscapes, quaint villages and medieval structures.
For the perfect family holiday, why not try a donkey-guided tour through the region? That’s right, a donkey tour! You walk from Navafría through various woodlands, wild grasslands, ancient hamlets and pastures of wildflowers with your intrepid donkey pal leading the way. Stopping overnight at kid-friendly hotels, this will be an unforgettable adventure for the whole family.
